At least they owned up to it pretty much repair and repaint, getting a new bumper is just ridiculous

Considering this damage just occurred the fastener sure started to rust rather quickly.

Those may be plastic fasteners and the brown spot is dirt?

New bumper if the dealer bites and I owned a R8 V10 for a few months and never understood why Audi didn't add a lift option. The nose is surprisingly low.

The V8's are in that range but the V10's are still above $100k. I believe Manic! has a V10.

I'd rather touch it up myself and demand a case of beer than have a claim on my R8. Its the bottom side of the bumper. You are in for a fucking body shop nightmare if you go the new bumper route and its a dealership paying for it.

Finally! A logical response. The dealership made a mistake, they are admitting it. That scrape wouldn't justify a new bumper.

However, I'd request to bring it to a shop of your choice though. Get a written estimate done, and make sure the dealership approves/pays for it.

This.

This route will also avoid a claim on your R8

Maybe get them to pay for a front lip that might cover it up?

Looks nice, but wouldn't that lower resale value, especially if the bumper isn't fixed up? Unless the next owner doesn't notice of course..

why would he have a claim on his R8?

Dealer is willing to repair it, not going through insurance

The dealership has insurance and will use it to pay for the bumper. They are saying it would require a new bumper if they go a certain route. The still have to pay Audi for that part and I bet an r8 bumper isn't cheap. They also likely have to pay a body shop unless they have their own at the dealer.

^ this. i'm honestly a little surprised at how many people would automatically jump to the entire bumper cover being replaced as the best/most logical resolution. it's a plastic bumper cover that's been gouged up. in what world is it logical or realistic to replace the entire bumper?

i do agree with what truenosan said re: getting it done at a shop of your choosing though. bring it to an r8 certified repairer (they aren't a dime a dozen) and get the dealer to foot the entire bill, including a courtesy car for the few days they'll need yours. as long as they're willing to do that, i'd walk away happy if I were OP

fact of the matter is most dealers don't have in house body repairers/painters and sublet any and all bodywork out anyway. only catch is you don't know how reputable the place is, so better off making all those arrangements yourself (despite the inconvenience) if you want to ensure your car is in the best hands (your own)
